What a great show the Pakenham Show was for Crafters Cupboard ! For those who don't know, it's one of the Picture to Page Shows which run in Melbourne as well as the regional areas of Victoria each year. Last year, the Pakenham Show was held in July. We were newbies to the craft scene here in Melbourne and our business had just 'floated'. We met lots of wonderful people and it proved to be a good launch pad for us, so of course, we were there again this year. What was great was so many people who came looking for us in the same spot, and they weren't disappointed. Our stock as really grown in the 10 months we have been going - Olivia told me the other day that we now have in excess of 5,000 items on our web site !! Wow !!
Well, needless to say, we had a great time at Pakenham - a big thankyou to Shirley from Picture to Page for all her hard work, a big thankyou to all our loyal customers and supporters and of course, thanks to all the team from Crafters Cupboard. Prepping for a show is a lot of work, as is the 'mop up' afterwards. And finally - a huge thankyou to those wonderful customers and tutors who helped with producing the great display of art work that we had - the Journal pages, Canvas works, Cards, Scrapbook pages /canvas's and all the altered art /mixed media samples were great to see and so much appreciated by both the team and the customers - we got lots of super comments about the work on display.
Here's a photo of the stand - well, one corner of it !
Now - onto the next big thing............
PAPER ARTSY are coming to town - THIS WEEK.
We are SO EXCITED to be having Leandra (aka Mrs Paper Artsy) here at Crafters Cupboard demonstrating this Friday.
Lucky for some - they got in quick and are enrolled in her class which is in the morning !! Sorry, all places are now filled.
But don't despair, you can still come along between 3.00 and 5.00 pm or between 6.00 and 8.00 pm to see her Demo - and she is an awesome demonstrator. Some people are coming at 3.00 and they've booked for both !! How good is that.
These demos are Walk In so if you think you are running late, no problem, just come when you can.
So if you've not done so already, get onto our website here under the Classes and Workshops tab on the home page and book a slot (or both slots) to make the most of Leandra's visit. She is only here on the Friday and this offer won't be extended or repeated in a long time so do your best to make it if you can!! We are looking forward to seeing you all. Once you have booked, you will get a confirmation email with details and remember, it's totally FREE to ATTEND !!
And ... if you think we sold all our stock at Pakenham, think again - more has arrived today so we will have good supplies of all the goodies that Leandra is going to be demonstrating. I've seen a sneak peak of what she is doing .. awesome stuff !!
See you all soon - so looking forward to a great day on Friday, so don't miss out.
